A TRIBUTE fund to pay for a lasting memorial to the Town Crier Garth Gibson, who died last month, has been set up.

The town council, on Monday, unanimously backed the plans - and ideas have already been put forward, including a tribute in either Phear Park or Manor Gardens, in the form of either a memorial oak tree or statue.

Donations to the fund can be made via a cut out form published for the first time in this week's Exmouth Journal and Exmouth Herald (see right).

A PayPal account has also been added to the town council's website: www.exmouth.gov.uk

Donors and members of the public will also be able to put forward their ideas on how the money could be spent.

The campaign will run until October 30 and a panel made up of members of Garth's family, the mayor, Cllr Darryl Nicholas, councillors, and family friend and former mayor Brenda Taylor - who persuaded Garth to take up the reigns as Town Crier.
